How Do I Configure and Use Shared Contacts?

Contact Us Graphic

Shared contacts are one of our features that enable users assigned as Office Manager and higher to add and edit a group of contacts that will be viewable to all users within your company. All users can view the shared contacts within the contacts page and dock. Viewing and editing shared contacts is currently limited to the Portal only.


  • Shared contact – a contact that is shared with all users within a domain.


  • Shared contacts are available for a single domain only.
  • Shared contacts can only be edited by the Office Manager scope and higher.


Adding Shared Contacts
